Love it or Leave it? Cropped Pants With Socks

Readers, I just came back from NYC the other weekend and gosh did I miss DC! That city is always hustling and bustling! Even the streets stay lively with action throughout the night. Aside from the craziness of the city, one thing that separates DC from NYC is the fashion. In DC, I often stand […]

What I Wore: Slacks for the Office

In the office, I love to wear dresses. They’re easy to style, one piece, and are pretty inexpensive from Goodwill (under $10). However, sometimes I like to amp up the boss lady in me and rock a pair of business slacks with cute oxfords. A few weeks ago, I stopped into one of the local […]

Wingtips and Snakeskin

Now that spring is finally creeping its way into the DMV, I think it’s about time to start whipping out those flats and oxfords. All winter I’ve shied away from wearing my oxfords because they don’t keep my feet warm enough. But, now that we’re finally experiencing 60 degree days, I’m more than ready to […]

My Favorite Thing (from Goodwill): Cole Haan Purple Sole Oxfords

Do you ever have those experiences where you really want to purchase something at full price but it’s too expensive? Then you hope that one day, you’ll find it at Goodwill in your size? Well, that’s what happened with these shoes. A few years ago, I saw these shoes (in another color though) at Nordstrom […]

The chunky oxford

The chunky heel made it way back on to the fashion scene through last year as did a sleek oxford style. I’m giving a prediction that the two will merge into a hybrid offspring that is utterly and completely chic for feminine footwear this winter.

Guest Blogger: Caring For Your Dress Shirts

Want to maximize the lifespan of your dress shirts? Off-the-shelf shirts have a two-year life expectancy. The average packaged shirt should have a wear life of 35 to 50 washings. If you can invest in custom dress shirts, they will last 5 to 7 years with proper care.  This is because custom shirts have reinforced […]
